“CAD/CAM has enabled us to compete against bigger labs. We can provide everything from digital study models, digital archiving to planning and manufacturing. And we can do it quickly.”
Stefano Negrini, lab owner, Italy
Expand services and attract new customers
“Our lab went digital with 3shape five years ago, since then we have seen major growth. We can now offer a super fast, super accurate, fully digital solution to our customers,” Darren Mitchell, Managing Director, UK.
Improve customer relationships
"Going virtual allows us to send cases back to an orthodontist to review and give good immediate feedback. We work much more interactively now with an orthodontist. Digital being better would be stating the obvious,” Ari Sciacca, lab owner, Digital Orthodontics, Australia.
“This is a tremendous change”
“Just two years ago, we were still sending our labs traditional impressions. It would take three to four weeks for appliance design and shipping. Now, it only takes two to three days for a retainer. This is a tremendous change!” Dr. Santiago Isaza Penco, Orthodontist, Italy.
Use CAD/CAM customization and accuracy
“Going digital means that the work we do is now virtual. We can edit, save, share and even remake a patient’s appliance with just a click. It’s a much more effective way to work,” Team Ortodonzia Estense, Italy.
